Through the dedicated practice of the eight limbs of yoga, which leads to luminous wisdom, and eventually an experience of profound discernment and clarity

The last sūtra outlined the different stages that you go through in the evolution of clarity and wisdom Here, Patanjali introduces the ‘eight limbs of yoga’ (ashtanga yoga); a practical approach to enhancing clarity, which he will go into more depth in the next many sūtra-s. He also presents some of its extraordinary benefits:

  • Yoga is a powerful system of purification.

  • Eliminating impurities fosters great luminous wisdom.

  • Bathing in such light, you may realise your deepest potential
